NASHVILLE – Senorise Perry has been designated for return to the active roster and was scheduled to take part in practice with the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday.
Perry was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 23, three days after the Week 2 victory over Jacksonville. He rushed two times for nine yards and played 17 snaps on special teams in that contest.
His injury cleared the way for Jeremy McNichols to be added to the active roster and to assume a larger role with the offense in recent contests.
Being designated for return means coaches and medical staff have up to three weeks to evaluate Perry in practices but he won’t count against the 53-man roster. Cornerback Adoreé Jackson was designated for return last week and has not yet been added to the roster.
Perry, 29, is in his first season with the Titans and has established himself as a valuable special teams contributed. He logged 31 special teams snaps in the first two weeks and was credited with one tackle in the kicking game.
Before he came to Tennessee, he appeared in 59 games for three teams (Chicago, Miami and Buffalo), primarily as a special teamer. His best season in that regard was 2018, when he made 12 special teams tackles and averaged 20.5 yards on eight kickoff returns for the Titans.
For his career, he has run the ball just 11 times for 33 yards. His two rushes against the Jaguars came on the only two plays he has gotten as a member of Tennessee’s offense.
